All my blogs about my life
Not many people know that I have ADHD. ADHD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and about 4% of people in the US have it. Most people think that ADHD is simply someone who is rambunctious and hyper, but that is not the case. ADHD is a neurodisorder, which affects the neurons in your brain. (more…)
wow, rough week! I’ve definitely taken hits left and right. I have decided though to just keep a smile on my face, and not let it get to me. There is nothing I can do, and worrying about something you dont have control over solves nothing. I don’t really want to get into the specifics of what is going on, because it’s quite personal, but just know that life isnt treating me with kid gloves. So, my question to you is, “How do you deal with stress?” (more…)
Me and my lovely wife are looking for a home! We currently live in a nice manufactured home, but with home prices being so low, we want to take advantage of the market and prepare for our future (with hopefully a few little ones running around). Because of this, I started looking for a good realtor. In my search I found a few websites that offered realtor services, but out of all of these, I was most impressed with Ziprealty, for a few reasons. (more…)
Well, it looks like this little blog might be growing! A good friend of mine, Jehosh27 is considering posting to our blog every once in a while. Its still not fore sure, but, hopefully you guys will get a chance to read more than just my boring ramblings. 🙂
The other day, I was reading a book about artificial intelligence and the turing test, and I was really drawn in. It made me stop and think about what makes us human, and what decisions shape our lives. So many of our decisions have such a profound effect in our lives, and they are often connected with one another. So, a man called Alan Turing created at test to see if a computer could actually be intelligent and make human decisions. A turing test works like this:
The other day, I was talking to a friend of mine, and started talking about sports. Now, Being a big nerd, I know nothing of sports, so the conversation become a little awkward for a moment. Till I realized something. He is just as big a nerd as I am. Taking a step back, I realize now, that guys will automatically gravitate towards being some kind of nerd. Whether its computers in my case, or Football, or guns, Guys need to become an “expert” in whatever field they find interesting. He started telling me about something called fantasy football. For those of you who don’t know, fantasy football is a game that is played with a group of people, each of whom creates a fantasy dream team of football players, taken from real football players. I listened to him in open mouthed amazement! This sounded suspiciously familiar! My mind conjured up thoughts of a group of kids, sitting around a table, and instead of wearing dungeon master hats, and nerd attire, a bunch of guys wearing football jerseys. While Dungeons and Dragons does involve a little more imagination than fantasy football, they are very similar… Both involve a group of guys getting together competing with stats on their “players” and having a good time. This makes me think, nerds and jocks are very much alike, at least deep down inside. They both like to use their imagination, the like to compete, and they like to become very knowledgeable in a subject. It makes me wonder why there is so much animosity between the 2 groups. Deep down inside, the 2 of them are just nerds!
Today is the birthday of someone who is very special to me, my Mom. On the left, you will see a picture of the woman who raised me, and taught me right from wrong. I am writing this post today to show my appreciation for her, a person who is strong, and fearless, and caring and gentle. This lady would not hesitate to give me a whooping if I acted up, and at the same time, would give me the world if she could. I have many friends, and some of them had childhoods without a mom. Through them, I can see how important it is to have someone there to support you, care for you, cry with you when your down, and jump for joy when you achieve a victory. My mom has always been there for me, no matter how down I was, or no matter how bad I behaved, she has always given 100% of herself to her children. I know I speak for them when I say that. Mom, I love you with all my heart, and today, on your birthday, I wish I was rich, so I could give you whatever material thing you wanted! Since I can’t I hope that the knowledge that your son loves you with all of his heart, and will always love you and dad! Thank you for every little thing you did, from putting up with me, to spanking me, to praising me, thank you for all of it! I would not be the person I am today without you! I love you both, and a very happy birthday to you!!!
So!!! My dear readers, I come before you today, flummoxed… I am tired of dealing with peoples Id’s! What do I mean by that? I’ve watched a few movies recently, and all I see in movies and tv nowadays is pride! It seems like everyone is walking around with giant heads!! Ok, not literally, but its true! People take everything personally nowadays! Why can’t people just relax and not get so angry! What do you lose by being civil? Someone makes a mistake on the highway and you treat them like they did it on purpose. Yeah I understand that maybe the guy is a moron, but come on, what do you get by yelling and blowing some brain cells in anger? (more…)
My favorite way to start the morning? With a good chuckle or laugh! I usually wake up pretty cranky, so to ease the pain of waking up, I turn to my favorite webcomics… Unfortunately though, at about 9 in the morning, some of the artists still havent posted a comic. (more…)
